After a car accident happens, it is important to figure out how the incident occurred and who is responsible. There are several parties that will look into an accident to answer all of their questions including the police, the insurance company, and the lawyers of the parties involved. Each of these entities will investigate according to their own internal procedures and with respect to their own objectives.
It is important that if you were harmed in a car accident in Mississippi that you have proficient and skilled legal counsel on your side.

Police Investigations of Car Accidents
An important piece of information that can help you build your claim is your Mississippi police report. When the police investigate a car accident they are gathering information on the parties involved. But they are also looking to see if there were any laws broken and if so, fines and arrests may ensue.
In the police report aside from identifying information of everyone that was involved in the accident, there will also be details of potentially how the accident happened. The police may include witness statements, information about how the accident scene looked when they arrived, weather conditions, injuries that were suffered, and potentially even a conclusion as to who is responsible.
Police reports are very helpful when a claim is being put together. This is especially true when victims were severely injured or there was a death because a police report should indicate these realities which show that the accident did produce harm. The police report is advantageous to establish a case against a reckless party that may have caused your accident but its findings are not going to be a conclusive means to win your case. In other words, you will still need more proof to strengthen your claim.
